An unmarried mother has sole legal custody of her child until the father takes the necessary steps to establish his paternity and obtain a custody order. He can request a visitation schedule through the court and the court will enter a child support order. If he does not take those steps and the mother relocates it will be more difficult for him to establish his rights.

Yes, but the father can file an injunction ordering the child be returned to the jurisdiction of the courts. Better to get it approved. see link.

When the issue pertains to unmarried couples the law presumes the mother to have full legal custody of the child(ren). The father must establish paternity before custody, child support or visitation rights can be addressed by the court.

The mother automatically have custody since there is no doubt she is the parent. The father have to establish paternity by doing a DNA test and then he can petition for visitation, custody and also pay child support.
